North Star Camp for Boys

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Jeremy Dancer joins us for his first summer at camp. A native of Florida, he's spent most of his life in food service. He has over 15 years of food service experience, cooking in restaurants as well as in catering. He spent five years working at Kool Beanz Cafe in Tallahassee. For the last year he's been working as a sous chef at a sorority house at Florida State University. When not cooking, he spends time outdoors and hiking. He's into live music and we'll be sure to get him to play some guitar for us this summer. We're excited to have Jeremy join our kitchen staff this summer!
